Bullet Blues Trend Update: 70s Revival

If it’s true that trends are cyclical, then we’ve been seeing blasts from the past this season; the 70s are having a MAJOR moment in fashion right now. From kimonos, to velvet, to platforms, to fringe, to bell bottoms, our favorite designers have piling boho trend on boho trend for looks that are equally vintage looking and forwardly refreshing. And here at Bullet Blues, we are digging it – the perfect excuse to break out our favorite pairs of bell bottoms and flares for a radical 70s revival update.

Though the 70s are often associated with disco, the 70s was also an era that rocked. Classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and Roxy Music were huge hits during this decade, and the fashions of their followers were just as enviable.

A luxurious, light kimono gets an edgy update when paired with a tiny bustier and matching, vampy lipstick, while camel accessories, like these gorgeous clogs and a comfortable cross-body bag, keep the outfit from being too dark. Paired with a luminescent hair chain and a pair of vintage-looking Bullet Blues Fox Ciel Sky Blue Skinny Jeans, you have a look that’s perfect for an outdoor music festival or an afterparty with the band.

Looking for a more refined look? Never fear – the flare on the Bullet Blues Bombshell Bleu Papillion Bootcut Jean will give you an effortless 70s vibe without any of the fringe or flower crowns. Pair these jeans with pieces that nod back to the 70s with equal ease, like a pussy-bow blouse in a polka-dot print and a black fur vest.

When paired with modern looking accessories, like a structured cobalt blue bag and pointy-toed booties, the outfit looks less like a costume and more like a smart fashion statement. Finish the look with a pair of cobalt Lennon sunnies and you’re ready to meet an old friend for coffee or hit that Sephora sale.

Feminine

 Want that WOW look for your next hot date? Slip into something a little more 70s inspired, like the Sunday Ciel High-Rise Flare Leg Jean from Bullet Blues. Paired with a floaty blush blouse, a set of dainty boho danglers, and sweet camel accessories, this look is romantic enough to make you look stunning but provocative enough to make your date look twice. Wear this outfit with a gray smokey eye and some strategically placed highlighter for an even sultrier look.
